The last time I saw Avi Buffalo, they were the first band to play at a music festival. They came on at around 5PM on a Friday to a half full venue and had the crowd bouncing by the end of it. A near impossible task, but I guess there was a lot of built up excitement in the room. Their set was short but perfectly formed, and is still remembered fondly.
They release their ‘difficult second album’ in September of this year, and we look forward to seeing what they come up with! The chance to see them in Whelans in October should not be spurned.
